Proportions Photos!

OK, it's the most popular question on the board at the moment - proportions.

Let's keep proportion discussions in here to keep the boards neat and tidy Smiley

One of the other patients here was kind enough to let me take a picture of his lower legs - which he has lengthened by 8.8cm! (88mm).

I repeat. This guy has lengthened by 8.8cm. I took these pictures today when he came into my room to say hello.





He is still in the process of recovering, so he doesn't stand or walk a lot, but I'll try get more pictures of him soon.

This guy was 159cm before his operation and is now 168cm. His legs look pretty good in my opinion, although he had a lot of complications along the way and didn't exercise for a couple of months, so he is spending another month recovering before he can walk fully unsupported.

His treatment took seven months and he had a lot of problems with pain and stuff, but this guy is a trooper and was determined to stick with the programme.

Now he walks with crutches and is also wearing the support frames that were made for him, which you can see in the picture.

He can't afford to stay in the hospital and has moved to a hotel, but the hospital let him come back every day to use the gym room and in my opinion, he is progressing really well.

When I get one of him standing, I'll get it posted up in this section for you.

I also hoping tomorrow get some of the female patients soon, and an Asian male model who is coming in tomorrow to get his nail taken out.

More photos soon! Smiley

i'm sorry but the photo i useless in talking about proportions if the patient isn't standing up and looking straight at the camera. also he must be wearing tight-fitted clothing (maybe some small shorts and a tight t-shirt) to really see if the proportions are noticeable. can't do anything with this photo.

all I have to ay is that's alot. Especially for a guy of short stature. The shorter you are, the bigger difference it's going to make in proportion. But who knows, maybe this guy had really short tibias. But in any case, I'm sure he's happy wit the new height.

Hi MMT,

Thanks a million for the photos! It is kind of hard to tell how well he carries the new length in his tibias (proportion wise) without seeing him standing. That is the only way to really see how his tibs look in relation to his femurs, and the rest of his body overall. I am not really sure, but it looks like his tibias are really really long and probably out of proportion with his femurs, not sure though. Lengthening almost 4 inches in only one segment seems like it would definately look strange. You say that his legs pretty good in your opinion, do you think his proportions are still acceptable? I am sure that he is ecstatic about the height he gained, but is he personally concerned with proportions, or just height?

I am personally struggling with which bones I should lengthen (tibs vs femurs) when I have my own LL. I am very concerned with proportions because I do not want my legs to look strange. Shocked I am 41 years old and I stand 5' 7 and 3/4 inches in my bare feet. I would like to gain 6-7cm to get to a solid 5' 10"+ which will be awesome as far my height goes, I just want to avoid looking like a praying mantis or something. Wink

Anyways, thanks again for the photos and for everything that you are doing to share your LL experience with those of us who are seeking information about LL. You rock dude!!! Cheesy

Thanks, guys! Smiley

Don't worry, there are more photos coming - as you can imagine, it's a little hard to convince people to let you take their photos, but I'm working my charm Wink

Mr Pink, the guy you can see here, will be walking and standing today, so I hope to get a few more shots of him, as well as the other guys I talked about.

It's still pretty amazing to think that his legs are 8.8cm longer than they were before. I just wouldn't have thought it was possible Shocked

PROPORTIONS AGAIN!

It's been a good day, today. I managed to do both my exercise sessions without too much pain (even though the second was shortly after I did another lengthening turn) I've had two lovely meals (Giant Pork Meatballs for lunch & Pork Slices with Mushrooms for dinner.

But you don't really care about that do you? What you want to hear is that I made a video of Mr Pink, and also of a girl called Dong Mei who has lengthened 12.0cm (120mm). YES. TWELVE CENTIMETRES Smiley

You asked for pictures? MMT gives you pictures!

Mr Pink
As you might hear on the video, he actually wants to be known as Iceman, but we've already started calling him Mr Pink, so that's that.

Here is a picture of him standing up.


Click here to launch the video of Mr Pink walking!

(Please bear in mind that he has only just had his frames removed and has about another 4 weeks exercising and physio before he will be able to walk properly. Please also bear in mind that I didn't bring those orange slippers to China with me - the maid bought them for me Smiley )

Before someone flames me saying that he is not naked, or wearing a lycra running suit, just bear in mind that, in the real world, people don't walk around naked or in Spandex. Not in my world anyway. In my world they wear normal clothes like the people in these photos [/endrant]

You want my view? His proportions look fine. The doctors told him he'd be OK, and he is OK.

Dong Mei
Oh my!  Cheesy

Some of us guys had a LONG debate about this lovely lady after her visit. I'm in the "Damn! She looks great!" camp, and I told her. Several times.

It seems to be a small camp, though. Consisting of me and lots of girls... She carries the extra height perfectly in my opinion, and she seems to be something of a local icon with the women.

A lot of the guys think that she has gone too far. (Note some of the exercise machines that we use in the background)

You make up your own mind... that's what this forum is all about!



Better still, here's the video!

Click here to launch the video of Dong Mei standing up and walking towards me!

I don't know if it is the drugs they are giving me to sleep, or the food, but I was quite taken with her and if I didn't have these frames on...

MM doesn't agree with me and I think that he will be on to disagree with me a bit later!

Enjoy! Wink

It's ok folks, MMT has been wheeled off to the doctor's office, dont worry his frames are fine, just his minds gone.

Dong mei, is like the plastic barbie of china, while having LL, she had eye surgery, lip surgery...the works. The girl is, as we say in china fungza (crazy).

But, if there are any nice local girls in china (beijing), please dont hesitate to Pm me, or MMT...

Hey MMt. I'm asking this as a presonal favour. Can you ask both of them if they had any problems with "ballerina foot" and knee flexim(bent knee) problems during the lengthening fazde. If so, how long and what kind of exersises did they do to fix it.

Hi CB. No one here has reported problems like that, and I think that there are two reasons:

1. The strict exercise regime that makes you move our legs every day even if you don't want to;
2. The horrible pins that they insist you have in your ankle that forces your heel to the ground throughout the whole process.

I can tell you that one guy who arrived here a few days after me couldn't take the pain of one of the ankle pins (it's definitely the most painful part of the approach here) and cried so hard that they took one out for him.

Since then, he's started developing ''Ballerina Foot' and you can clearly see that without a pin holding the heel to the floor, the foot starts to dip forward from the toes.

However, the doctors have told him that he MUST have the ankle pin replaced in 20 days. I know that he would rather have Ballerina Foot and fix it later (he's a tough American!) but they won't let him. They expect everyone to walk out of here. If you don't follow their rules, they'll happily refund your money and let you go elsewhere.

I don't know which approach is right, and which is wrong. I'm in two minds myself as I'd sleep much easier without the ankle pins, but I'd also like to walk out of here.

The ankle pins really hurt like hell when you walk and you can feel the extra pressure that they put on your heel, but it does seem to get people walking more quickly.

I hope that helps! Smiley

Hi MMt,

Do you expect to be in considerable pain due to the ankle pins for the entire time you are lengthening? Is this pain from the ankle pins in addition to the pain from the lengthening process itself (kind of double the pain)? What do the others who have been there for awhile say about the ankle pins and pain.....does it get better/less painful over time? Thanks!

Hi DD! It's only painful when you walk, and it gets better as the muscles stretch. I'll be able to take it until my frame is off - it's not too bad Smiley

Hi again MMT,

Thanks for your reply! Glad to hear the pain is not unbearable. Smiley I think that it is pretty cool that you were able to get MM for a roommate since you are both from the UK. I am guessing that you have made a friend for life! BTW, do you plan on keeping this site up and running after you have retutned home and are all finished with your LL adventure?

Thanks,
dd

Hi DD,

Yes, it's my plan to keep the site going forever - or until people are no longer interested in LL - I just hope that people will continue to be happy to post their diaries here when they go through their operations because that is what people really need to see - actual information from people going through the surgery Smiley
